Important News for Cricut Craft Room Users

Important News for Cricut Craft Room Users

April 22nd, 2018 • Cricut Team

Cricut has long paved the way in the creative space by offering innovative products that expand the possibilities of what anyone can make. Over the last five years, we’ve made incredible strides with the launch of our Cricut Design Space® software, compatible with the Cricut Explore family and the Cricut Maker, that allows our members to access a wide variety of content instantly from any mobile device.

With the evolution of Cricut Design Space, we’ve had to review other software platforms in our portfolio and make some tough decisions. We have unfortunate news for members who still use Cricut Craft Room: We will be closing Cricut Craft Room as of July 15, 2018. Cricut Craft Room was built on Adobe Flash technology, a now outdated plug-in. Adobe Flash is no longer supported by Adobe, and that has created numerous vulnerabilities in the software—including speed and performance. This means you will no longer be able to access Cricut Craft Room on your desktop if you still use a legacy machine, including Cricut Personal, Create, Expression, Expression 2, Mini, Cake, Cake Mini, and Imagine.

We understand this is going to cause frustration for a number of our active Cricut Craft Room members. We are fully committed to helping you understand what this means and, importantly, we want to make sure you have as smooth a transition as possible during this time. To help with this transition, we have a special offer for legacy machine owners who have not yet upgraded to our latest machines: You’ll get $75 off any Explore machine or bundle on Cricut.com. This applies to all of our U.S., Canada, U.K., EU and other international members. Please refer to the eligibility section in the FAQs below to see if you’re eligible for this offer.

All Cricut Craft Room members who have opted-in to Cricut’s emails will receive their code by April 28 to redeem on cricut.com, and the code will be good through July 15, 2018. After July 15, 2018, the code will expire. If you do not receive your code by email by Saturday, April 28, please contact Cricut Member Care.

Our members are incredibly important to us and we know this transition won’t be easy for everyone, but we want to make it as seamless as possible. We have such a passionate community of makers and we want to inspire you to stay part of it. Please check out our Q&A below for more information, or feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.

Thank you for being a valued member of the Cricut family.

 

Cricut Craft Room FAQs

Cricut Content 

What qualifies as a legacy machine?

  • Any machine that was created before the Explore family of machines qualifies as a legacy machine as it is not compatible with our current design software, Design Space. The first Explore machine launched in 2014.
  • Cricut no longer produces these machines. Legacy machines include Cricut Personal, Create, Expression, Expression 2, Mini, Cake, Cake Mini, and Imagine.

What is Design Space?

  • Cricut Design Space® is a robust web-based platform that you can access on your computer, phone or tablet. The Design Space mobile app will be coming to international users soon.
  • You can access Design Space for free by visiting design.cricut.com and signing in with the same email and password you use for Cricut Craft Room. You’ll have access to thousands of projects and designs, as well as tools to help you make any project your heart desires.

Can I still use my legacy machine without Cricut Craft Room?

  • All of our legacy machines, except for the Cricut Mini, can run independently of Cricut Craft Room software using physical cartridges. Digital content from Cricut Craft Room will no longer be available for use with your legacy machine.
  • Cricut Design Space is not compatible with legacy machines.
  • Once Cricut Craft Room is unavailable, the Cricut Mini will be unusable as it is not a standalone machine. If you are a Cricut Mini owner and would like to review our warranty statement, please click here.
  • We have created a special offer for legacy machine owners who have not had the opportunity to upgrade. They will receive a promotion code for $75.00 off the purchase of any Explore machine or bundle on Cricut.com. 
  • This offer will also apply for our international members and the currency will be translated accordingly.

If I purchased content in Cricut Craft Room, what happens to my content if I upgrade machines?

  • Purchased content from Cricut Craft Room will automatically transfer over to Design Space. You may access this content by going to design.cricut.com and signing in with your Cricut Craft Room email and password.
  • Your purchased content will be available in Design Space under “Images” and then filter by “Purchased.”

Will I be able to see all my saved projects from Cricut Craft Room in Design Space?

  • Due to compatibility issues, any projects saved in Cricut Craft Room will not be accessible in Design Space. You may upload your artwork or re-create saved projects. An exclusive webinar training regarding this process will be available at help.cricut.com.

If I upgrade, will I be able to use the content from my physical cartridges?

  • With our Explore machines, you will have the ability to link your physical cartridges to Design Space. The cartridge port on an Explore machine is for linking cartridges only, not for standalone use. If you have already linked your cartridges in Craft Room, they will automatically be available in Design Space under the same login information.
  • Cartridges can only be linked to one Cricut ID. If you have purchased any used cartridges that were linked by the previous owner, they will not link to your Design Space account.

I also use Cricut DesignStudio on my legacy machine. Will Cricut continue to support that software?

  • Cricut DesignStudio, an older software once available on CD, will no longer be supported. If you currently have the software activated on your computer, it will still be available for use with various legacy machines; however, it will no longer be supported from a Member Care or activation standpoint.

 

Upgrade Eligibility 

What are the benefits of Design Space?

  • Design Space is cloud-based, so your files are accessible from any phone, tablet, or PC, any time. You can start on your phone, continue on your laptop, and even work offline on your Apple device – keeping your creativity going.
  • Design Space has over 60,000 digital images and thousands of ready-to-make projects ranging from vinyl to paper to leather and so much more. You can easily upload your own artwork on your desktop or on your iOS device.

How do I know if I’m eligible for the $75 off Explore family offer?

  • Any legacy machine owner who has not previously upgraded to an Explore family or Maker machine will be eligible for the offer.
  • The offer will be redeemable from Sunday, April 22 to Friday, July 15, 2018.
  • This offer is only redeemable for one machine per owner. Owners that have multiple legacy machines will not receive multiple offers to upgrade.
  • If you have already upgraded to an Explore, but also own a legacy machine, your content from Cricut Craft Room will continue to be accessible in Design Space.
  • Customers who are eligible and have opted-in to Cricut emails will receive a code within 7 days of this announcement. If you do not receive your code by Saturday, April 28, please contact Cricut Member Care.
  • Cricut will honor upgrading any legacy machine owner who has not already upgraded, no matter where you purchased the device. All we will need when you call in, if you did not receive the code, is the serial number on your legacy machine.

What is the coupon offer and do I get anything else when I upgrade?

How do I redeem the $75 off Explore family offer?

  • Go to shop.cricut.com.
  • Click on machines and choose the Explore machine you would like to purchase.
  • Add the machine to your cart and click “Checkout.”
  • When you get to the checkout page, enter the discount code under “Payment Method.”
  • The code is only valid for a one-time purchase.
  • International customers outside of the US and Canada must call Member Care to redeem their coupon code if eligible.

Why can’t I redeem the $75 off code for Cricut Maker?

  • The Cricut Maker is the latest in our family of machines and, unfortunately, we are unable to offer any discounts on the machine at this time.

I’m an international user that doesn’t have access to Design Space. When can I download the iOS or Android app and make in-app purchases in Design Space?

  • We understand it is frustrating for our international members who want to access and make purchases with other currencies in Design Space through iOS and Android apps. We are working diligently to make this accessible to all members.
  • We plan to roll out these features soon and will notify international members as soon as they launch.

 

Resources & Training 

If you upgrade, we highly encourage you to take advantage of our exclusive webinar training we’ve created for legacy machine members. The dates for training and sign-up information is below:

You can now curve text in Cricut Design Space!

You Can Now Curve Text in Design Space!

April 3rd, 2018 • Contributor: Shelby Jones, Cricut Social Media Specialist

It’s here! It’s here! You all have been asking for...curved text and we are here to deliver! If your mind is flowing with creative ideas like ours is right now, let’s jump into the software and curve all the things!  We will show you just how simple it really is.

You can now curve text directly in Design Space!

The Curve tool can be found in the Text Edit bar at the top of the Canvas, between the Alignment and Advanced tools.

1: Add Your Text

Create the text that you want to curve

Click on the text icon, and type whatever your heart desires, for this project we will be using the words “Happy Birthday”.  Choose your font, font style, and use the Letter Space tool to adjust letter spacing as needed.

If you have multiple lines of text you are wanting to curve you will want to create a separate text box, or use the “Ungroup to Lines” tool to separate your lines of text just how you want them.

2: Curve That Text!

Use the tool to curve text in Design Space

Now for the fun part - click the Curve tool. Don’t see it on your toolbar? Make sure your full screen is open on your computer.  If it isn’t all the way open check for the “More” button and you will see it under that menu.

Once you highlight your text and click the curve option it will take a few moments to register and then display a slider and number field. Drag the slider to achieve your desired curve.

Wondering what those numbers mean? The Number in the Diameter field is measuring an imaginary circle to determine the curvature of the text. So in the video, you will see us taking the diameter number of the first line.

For our project, we copied that number and applied a (-) sign to create the inverse of that top line. Now we have the look we want with even curvature and we can adjust the spacing as needed with the Line Space tool.

Remember that the Curve tool will only enable for single lines of text! The Curve tool cannot be used on text that has been ungrouped to individual letters, then regrouped, so if additional manual letter spacing adjustments are needed after you have used the Letter Spacing tool, wait until you have curved the text to do this.

How Simple Is That?

Before we get to crafting our project we wanted to share with you some final nitty gritty details!

  • Curved text will remain completely editable unless welded or flattened. You can continue to adjust letter spacing, rotate, edit the text, and change the font style and style after curving your text!
  • The Curve tool is currently only available in your desktop computer version of Design Space.
  • At this time, projects containing curved text will not open in mobile apps.  However, if your text has been welded or flattened so that is functions as an image rather than a text box, the project can be opened in mobile apps.

Our head is swimming with ideas and we can’t wait to see what you will add some curve to! Head over to https://design.cricut.com to try the brand new tool out!

Like what you see? Be sure to share this to your Facebook or Pinterest to refer to later or share with a friend!

FIT Students with Cricut Maker

See How These Student Designers Made Magic with Cricut Maker

March 7th, 2018 • Contributor: Lauren Duletzke, Cricut PR Manager

In October 2017, Cricut launched a scholarship contest called Project Maker with students in Home Products and Accessories Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology.

Challenged to create cohesive collections using diverse materials with Cricut Maker, over 50 students participated and submitted innovative concepts in the home and fashion accessories categories. A key focus for the students was to make sure their designs could translate for the everyday craft hobbyist, making it easy for anyone to recreate their collections.

After months of sketching, creating in Design Space and prototyping, 10 student finalists were chosen to physically produce their collections and present to a panel of Cricut judges in New York City. Here is an amazing look at their journey through the contest.

Meet the Scholarship Winners

While all of the students created impressive collections, 3 students were chosen as the scholarship prize winners. Their unique use of materials combined with the ease of project creation and premium collection aesthetic blew the judges away.  

Not only did these students receive a scholarship prize for the collections but their collections are now available in Design Space for our community to create. Let’s meet them:

Saumya Sharma, Accessories Design

Saumya Sharma, Accessories Design

Her collection Essentials and Not is an 8-piece accessories collection ranging from projects like a headphones-keeper, wallet, keychain and a small backpack. The leading material used is leather for the base products and Cricut Foil Iron-On for the leaf pattern.

Saumya’s inspiration for her collection comes from her favorite palm plants, which her dad grew at their home in India.

“When I was in school, I loved making things with my own hands, but I didn’t always have the resources or skill to do it the best way. The Cricut maker helps people like me bring to life our ideas.”

Saumya Sharma, Accessories Design

Catherine Clock, Home Products

Catherine Clock, Home Products

Her collection Jungle Chic is a collection of tropical chic nursery projects, for either a boy or girl’s room, including wall art, room decor and furniture design. She used a variety of materials including Cricut Cardstock, Felt, and Iron-on. Cat’s inspiration comes from the mixing and matching of prints, one of the leading trends in home design for 2018.

“Cricut gave me a chance to take everything I've learned and put it into action.”

Chloe Sooyeon Kang, Accessories Design

Her collection Blooming You is a fresh and bright inspiration to the contrast of New York City’s hectic industrial vibe. Chloe sees her collection as a way to brighten up any woman's wardrobe with a focus on personalization, given the vinyl elements used across the bag.

She also used one of this year’s most popular accessory materials, PVC plastic, to create her collection and embellished with Cricut felt floral pieces on snaps.

Tell us what you think about these student collections in the comments below. You’ll see tutorials on some of the winners' favorite projects coming to the blog soon. We will also be adding some of the other student finalist projects into Design Space in the near future, so you can make more of their beautiful collections.

EasyPress Heat Map

EasyPress vs. Heat Press vs. Iron: Which One Is for You?

February 16th, 2018 • Cricut Blog Team

If you love working with iron-on, you have probably looked at our EasyPress and wondered if it's a must-have for your crafting collection, or if you would be better off with an iron or heat press. Let's explore some of the pros and cons of each type.

Irons

Irons can do more than just get the wrinkles out of your clothes; they can be used to adhere iron-on and help with other crafts. They don't take up much room comparatively, so can be worked into many households.

PROS: 

  • It's very portable, which is great when you want to craft on the go.
  • Many people already own one.
  • The least expensive option on average of the three

CONS:

  • The temperature can vary wildly throughout the surface of the plate. You might end up with iron-on that doesn't stick as well as it could. It could also be scorched.
  • A small surface means you will have to move it several times potentially to cover your entire design.
  • Since it sits upright while in use, a hot surface is exposed that can lead to burns.

Heat Press

If you have a small crafting business, you've likely considered buying a heat press. These machines consist of a base and two plates. You place your product between the plates, close, then let the heat and pressure adhere the iron-on to your item.

PROS

  • Large work surface
  • Heat and pressure make results last longer and adhere better than an iron

CONS

  • Not as portable as the other options
  • Since both plates are heated, you would have to be extra careful not to be burned. 
  • Most expensive on average between the three options

EasyPress

We designed the EasyPress to have the convenience of an iron with the durability of a heat press. Since the temperature is even throughout, firm pressure while pressing down is all you need for lasting results. It's so easy to craft with iron-on when you use this!

PROS:

  • Even heating throughout the surface for better results than an iron
  • Portable
  • Safer and less expensive than a heat press
  • Larger surface than an iron
  • Comes with an insulated safety base to protect from burns while crafting

CONS:

  • Not as large a surface as a heat press
  • Costs more than many irons

Which one(s) do you own? What would you add as pros or cons for each? Tell us below!

Learn more about the new image upload feature in our Design Space iOS App

Uploading Images on iOS is Here!

November 21st, 2017 • Contributor: Cricut Product Marketing Manager Cortney Haymond

I know I am not the only one out there that is excited about the latest iOS app update. We know you have been wanting the ability to upload images from your iPhone or iPad and now that capability has arrived which makes us all feel like this:

Excited about the new iOS image uploading capability!

So now that it is here, let’s look at how it works.

Image upload works directly with your camera or camera roll, so you can use any type of file that would be found in your Photo Library. This means you can take a picture and send it straight into Design Space. 

Excited about the new iOS image uploading capability!

Once you take your picture or choose your image from your camera roll, you will be taken to the clean portion of the process. I just took a picture of some hand-lettering I have been working on.

Excited about the new iOS image uploading capability!

From here I have access to all the tools that the computer software has (remove, erase, and crop), plus a few more!

Excited about the new iOS image uploading capability!

If you move the circle toward the plus or minus it will remove more or less of the background. This is a really useful tool when you are working with more complex images such as pictures. The little box in the upper right corner is your cut preview. No need to toggle back and forth here!

Excited about the new iOS image uploading capability!

After you take out what you don’t want, click next and you will be taken to my new favorite feature! The despeckle and smooth page! Because I just took a picture from my phone, there are bound to be a few pixels here and there. Despeckle erase the smallest pieces first getting rid of the small flecks that were hard to see. Next comes smooth. Now if I am being honest with myself (and you,) I don’t have the steadiest of hands yet as I am hand lettering. This is why smooth is so great, it takes away the rough edges.

Excited about the new iOS image uploading capability!

From here you save it to the cloud as a Cut image or a Print Then Cut image.

That’s it, folks. It is that easy to upload images from your iOS device!

Let us know in the comments below just how excited you are about image upload and what type of things you will be uploading to make projects.

Use the EasyPress for your Iron-on Crafts

Enjoy Even Heating With the Cricut EasyPress

October 12th, 2017 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

Have you been eyeing our new Cricut EasyPres, wondering if you should add it to your crafting collection?

Traditionally, there have been two options that crafters could use for applying iron-on vinyl: an iron or a heat press.

  • The home iron has the convenience of portability and can be fairly inexpensive. However, it may take several passes to make sure you cover the entire design. You also often need to apply a LOT of pressure to make sure the vinyl actually sticks since the heating surface temperatures can vary wildly.
  • Many small business crafters upgrade to a heat press. These machines usually have a clamshell type of design that allows you to apply heat and pressure evenly across your entire project. However, they can be bulky, expensive, and hot to use.

What Makes the EasyPress Unique?

The EasyPress combines the best of both worlds, offering even heating in a portable package. We made sure to create heating elements that spread throughout the machine to keep the temperatures within a close range across the entire surface. This means you will enjoy improved results from your efforts.

We have included a handy temperature and time chart in the box to help you get just the right settings for your materials. Set the timer so you know how long you need to keep pressing. That's another great feature; you don't have to press down extra hard like you would with an iron. Just apply firm pressure and wait for the vinyl to cool down before you remove it. 

It's also a safer option to have around the house if you compare it to a heat press (especially if you have kids around!). Those machines have you placing your materials between two hot plates. With the EasyPress, you have a big flat surface with a handle on top. It also has a safety shut-off after 10 minutes so you don't need to wonder if you forgot and left it plugged in.

But Will The Transfer Last Through Washes?

Another advantage of the heat press over an iron is that the results usually do better at staying intact through multiple washes. Can the EasyPress stand up to this test? The answer is Yes! Of course, results are dependent on what products you use, how you apply it and how you do your laundry, but in our tests, the vinyl stayed on through over 40 washes and counting. The even heating means a better chance that all of the vinyl will adhere and not come loose down the road.

Take it to your next baby shower and create a onesie customization station.  If you have a craft business, imagine having an EasyPress at your next craft show, allowing you to create for your customers right then and there. Make shirts for your sports team. There are so many possibilities!

 

Have you tried the Easy Press yet? How are your wash results? Tell us in the comments below!

Cricut Maker machine FIT contest

Cricut Launches “Project Maker” Contest at the Fashion Institute of Technology

October 5th, 2017 • Contributor: Cricut Blog Team

With the launch of Cricut Maker™, our goal is to open up more possibilities for makers across creative categories. One way we’re bringing this to life is by launching a scholarship contest with the Fashion Institute of Technology, a leading institution for education in art, design, business and technology based in New York.

Students participating in the scholarship contest are from the Accessories Design and Home Products Development departments. Students will design and create original accessories collections for fashion and home décor using Cricut Maker. Winners will receive scholarship prizes and the opportunity to have their collections featured in Design Space – where everyone in our community will have access to recreate their collections.

FIT faculty incorporated “Project Maker” in their Home Products Development and Accessories Design curricula for the Fall semester. Accessories created by students can consist of original goods (a leather clutch, for instance) or designs that can be applied to existing items (e.g., an original pattern that can be used to embellish a purchased clutch).

The challenge for the students is to utilize their talent and advanced skills as upcoming professionals to create a collection of designs that can be replicated by the everyday, non-professional maker.

“FIT is home to some of the most talented design-minded students in the world, and we can’t wait to see how they will stretch the boundaries of what Cricut Maker can do,” said Ashish Arora, CEO of Cricut. “Our mission is to help people lead creative lives. I’m confident that as we watch their collections take shape, these future designers will push us even further to elevate the creative experience for all of our customers, from daily makers to entrepreneurs.”

Contest finalists will be given a Cricut Maker, Cricut EasyPress™, Cricut BrightPad ™, as well as a gift card for buying supplies. Finalists will present to a panel of judges in December and the winners will be announced two weeks later.

Make sure you look out on the Cricut blog for results from the contest in the coming weeks. We’re so excited to share with you what these innovative students will produce using Cricut Maker.
